We need your help here at the School of Informatics. We are committed to Indiana technology education and Indiana technology research through the professional development of our students (Informatics, HIA, and Media Arts) into graduates ready for the real world of employment in the Indiana tech sector and beyond.

We need industry professionals working in emerging business technology at information technology businesses willing to impart some wisdom and give honest advice to students on what their field is like and how to best prepare for jobs in their organizations.

What’s in it for me you ask? In return for a little of your time your organization:

  1. Gets branded with the student population here at the school. Free viral marketing is very effective!
  2. Gets to interact with students and find those potential interns and employees who are ready for work now.
  3. Can help those students who need to develop further skills by giving them advice that will better prepare them for internships and full-time positions for Indiana information technology jobs in the future…maybe with your company.

Getting involved with the IU School of Informatics is a great way to recruit interns and future employees. Let some of our students come visit your organization for job shadows or mock interviews. Come visit our classes and present to students who will all be graduating with a degree in New Media, Informatics, or Health Information Administration. We have two sections of the Directed Studies course this fall. One meets on Tuesdays and the other on Thursdays. If you would like to be involved in one or both please contact me and I will make arrangements with you.
